Sherri posed her model, Alana, in her backyard on a beautiful spring morning. She was especially interested in portraying the bright, glistening sunlight as it touched Alana's hat and shoulders. Sherri used a combination of palette knives and brushes to create a slightly textured surface.
Sherri Aldawood didn't intend to always paint flowers, but over time her love of gardens started to permeate her art. She focuses on the light and color of the flowers on the canvas. Sherri prefers alla prima, working with wet layers of paint instead of letting them dry. She keeps the paint as wet as possible by using walnut and clove oil to extend the drying time.
